A jig written by James Kelly. The tune is dedicated to James’s mother who was born in Ballisland, Wicklow.

Even though I just copied and pasted that link it doesn’t seem to work properly on my computer - not sure why. Anyway it’s a cute cottage and its for rent in Wicklow in a place called Shillelagh near Arklow Co Wicklow.
